The Frederick Dharma Book Club meets on the first and third Tuesday of every month from 8:15 to 9:15 pm. Each month the club will discuss a selected book. The goal is to open your minds and hearts to the diverse selection of dharma related material. Even if you have not read the book, please come and enjoy the evening. The discussion is open to all who are interested in learning more about the dharma and how these valuable teachings can make us more aware and bring more insight into our lives.
Before our Dharma Book Club, I would encourage you to attend Anthony Dominic Chielli’s Meditation Group class from 7:00 to 8:00pm. Anthony will incorporate the teachings of the books into his guided meditations. This could be a great way to practice what we learn from the books.
